2019 NFL Week 5 Predictions



Patrick Mahomes got his first playoff win versus Indianapolis last season. Now Mahomes aims to embarass the Colts again on Sunday Night Football.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: October 2, 2019.



Los Angeles Rams 3-1-0
Versus
Seattle Seahawks 3-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the Rams VS Seahawks game.


Listen to "Rams Showcase" on Spreaker.




Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: Jared Goff threw for 517 passing yards and lost to Tampa Bay. Initially, I was going to take the Seahawks in an upset. Now with the Rams playing the Los Angeles Dodgers on the same day with the 2019 NLDS starting on Thursday, Jared Goff is in a pitchers duel with Clayton Kershaw where he has to prove to himself that he can outperform Kershaw.


Todd Gurley will face a good Seattle front 7. The Rams cannot limit him to 5 carries like they did against Tampa Bay without Devin White.


Los Angeles has Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, and Josh Reynolds at wide receiver going up against Shaquem Griffin and Tre Flowers. Goff also has tight ends Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee. Seattle's safeties will be practicing zone coverage to anticipate when Goff is gonna throw deep so Goff will have to take whatever open space Seattle's safeties give him since that is the weakness he can exploit.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Russell Wilson faces a Los Angeles Rams defense that gave up 55 points to a Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense that is damn good. Russell Wilson does not have the weapons Winston had. Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib dominated last year, but both corners have seen their play decline slightly since Super Bowl 53. If Wilson can pick those corners apart, then Seattle has a chance. If those corners limit what Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf do then the Los Angeles Rams should win.


Even though people will hype up the quarterbacks, both teams are loaded in the backfield. Los Angeles has Todd Gurley, Malcolm Brown, and Darrell Henderson. Seattle has Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise, and Rashaad Penny when healthy. Penny did well against Pittsburgh, but was inactive against Arizona. Seattle will have to rely on Carson and Prosise once again to control the clock and win the time of possession battle.


Seattle has 4-3 right end Jadeveon Clowney going up against Los Angeles Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth. Los Angeles has a lot of depth at offensive tackle so Clowney has to step up big on Thursday Night Football in order for Seattle to win.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 1.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $125 dollars with the average gambler betting around $115 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49 points. I am going with Los Angeles to win and to cover with the over.


Final Score Rams 27 Seahawks 26

Carolina Panthers 2-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Draft Utopia podcast just exceeded 213,500 listeners. Click the words Draft Utopia to check out our Talkshoe podcast. Our road to 300,000 on Talkshoe is already underway. We also debuted on Spreaker and have a playlist for all of our previous podcasts on Spreaker. We will be airing lots of content on Talkshoe and Spreaker all throughout the week.


Listen to "DRAFT UTOPIA" on Spreaker.

Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Cam Robinson dominated at left tackle giving Gardner Minshew up to 7.5 seconds to throw in the third quarter. With Robinson back at left tackle and with Jalen Ramsey likely to be cleared, I like Gardner Minshew and Leonard Fournette over Kyle Allen and Christian McCaffrey. If Newton returns in week 5, I may lean towards Carolina.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: If Carolina's defense continues to play like they have, then Carolina can win. I just feel like Jacksonville has more overall talent and will win as a result.


Prediction: Carolina enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $160 dollars, the maximum bet is $180 dollars with the average gambler betting around $170 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49 points. I am going with Jacksonville to win and to cover with the under.

New England Patriots 4-0-0
Versus
Washington Redskins 0-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


@CockyBelichick is my favorite Twitter user of all time. His twitter feed is that epic. He always inserts the #kisstherings hashtag and it is badass. I'm going to post his 5 best tweets on our site every week like David Letterman does with his top 10 jokes until the owner of this twitter feed requests I take them down because his tweets are that epic. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets from week 4 in the NFL.



The NCAA needs to take a stand like Coach Belichick. #kisstherings




That just seems offensive to Antonio Brown. On the other hand, Brown offended the entire NFL with his pathetic attempt at recreating the T.O. Show. #kisstherings




Well, our left tackle and center are injured. That's why this offensive line sucks right now. Buffalo's front 7 is completely healthy which is why they were able to limit us. Besides left tackle and center are the two most important positions on the offensive line.




This would actually be kind of cool to see. Kellen Moore is 28. That's how old Sean McVay was when he became offensive coordinator. Kellen Moore was being considered a future head coach before the Sunday Night Football loss to the New Orleans Saints.




By this logic, I'm a loser because I would rather be my own boss at Draft Utopia than play for a contender.



Why the New England Patriots Will Win: Even though New England was awful in Buffalo, they will adjust for Washington. Washington is just a mess right now. Without Trent Williams at left tackle or Brandon Scherff at right guard, New England will be able to do just enough to win. Julian Edelman will be able to match up well with Josh Norman.


Why the Washington Redskins Will Win: Montez Sweat finally got a start against the New York Giants. If Washington has Montez Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan next to each other, they may be able to limit what New England can do offensively. At the same time, New England has the leagues best defense and with Washington's problems on the offensive line along with Washington's clusterfuck of a quarterback situation, the Patriots are likely to win.


Prediction: New England enters as a 15.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $600 dollars, the maximum bet is $1,000 dollars with the average gambler betting around $800 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44 points. I am going with New England to win and Washington to cover with the under.


Final Score Patriots 24 Redskins 10

Buffalo Bills 2-2-0
Versus
Tennessee Titans 2-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I've been uploading film to our Youtube Channel for the 2020 NFL Draft. We're even incorporating that film into our mock drafts. If you do film cut ups, add me on Twitter @DraftUtopia and message me. I'm also posting full College Games On Bitchute. So far there are 9 full games on Bitchute.


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Buffalo is coming off a loss. Devin Singletary will be back. Josh Allen is in concussion protocall. I do not trust Matt Barkley at all so if Allen is out this is an automatic win for the Titans.


While Tennessee has left tackle Taylor Lewan and right tackle Jack Conklin who can limit what right end Jerry Hughes and left end Shaq Lawson can do off the edge. Buffalo has the advantage inside being four deep at defensive tackle with Star Lotulelei and Ed Oliver as starters while Harrison Phillips and Kyle Peko can get pressure on Rodger Saffold and whoever Tennessee starts at center or right guard.


Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Marcus Mariota shined even without left tackle Taylor Lewan. Tennessee has A.J. Brown and Corey Davis at wide receiver. Delanie Walker missed all of last year with an injury. Derrick Henry got 100 rushing yards on Atlanta's defense. Tennessee has enough weapons to limit what Buffalo does. Buffalo faced a weak New England offensive line without Isaiah Wynn or David Andrews and now they get Tennessee's offense at full health.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $135 dollars, the maximum bet is $155 dollars with the average gambler betting around $145 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 38.5 points. I am going with Tennessee to win and to cover with the under.


Final Score Titans 21 Bills 10

Baltimore Ravens 2-2-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 1-3-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Week 4 is in the books. For the first time in Draft Utopia history, everyone had a losing record in week 4. Jason Bantle is now 42-21. I am now in second place with a record of 40-23. Jesse Lucas is now 37-26. Oren Shiri is 36-27. Tanya Holmes is 34-29. Right now I am 29-34 ATS heading into week 5.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Lamar Jackson has to click with Marques "Hollywood" Brown, the nephew of Antonio Brown in order for Baltimore to steal this game. Baltimore is coming off their first loss while Pittsburgh is coming off their first win. Baltimore does have an extra two days to rest while Pittsburgh is on a shortened schedule thanks to the Monday Night Game. Baltimore also has a top 10 run defense that may be able to limit what James Conner and Jaylen Samuels do on the ground.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Pittsburgh has confidence and momentum right now. Pittsburgh's five starters on the offensive line dominated. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, left guard Ramon Foster, center Maurkice Pouncey, right guard David DeCastro, and right tackle Matt Feiler all did well throughout this game when it came to pass blocking, run blocking, zone blocking, pull blocking, and cut blocking against Cincinnati.


Now these blockers face a Balitmore Ravens pass rush without Terrell Suggs or Z'Darius Smith. If Pittsburgh's offensive line holds up again, then the Steelers should win. Even though Baltimore's run defense began the year on a high note, they allowed Nick Chubb to put up a clinic. Baltimore will be able to keep Pittsburgh's running game in check, but their secondary is awful without Jimmy Smith and that may be enough for Mason Rudolph to outperform Lamar Jackson at Heinz Field. Both quarterbacks were 2018 NFL Draft picks, so this is a statement game for Mason Rudolph.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $160 dollars, the maximum bet is $180 dollars with the average gambler betting around $170 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5 points. I am going with Pittsburgh to win and to cover with the over.

Arizona Cardinals 0-3-1
Versus
Cincinnati Bengals 0-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted a film cut of Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm. Fromm did good versus Notre Dame.




Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Patrick Peterson is returning from his suspension. A.J. Green is still out. That is one reason why I love the Cardinals in an upset as they get their first win in Cincinnati. Terrell Suggs and Brooks Reid both can give Dalton problems by blitzing off the edge.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Cincinnati is just a mess everywhere at the moment. I'm not even entertaining the idea of them winning a game until A.J. Green returns.


Prediction: Cincinnati enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $165 dollars, the maximum bet is $185 dollars with the average gambler betting around $175 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5 points. I am going with Arizona to win and to cover with the under.

Atlanta Falcons 1-3-0
Versus
Houston Texans 2-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I may make a 2020 NFL Draft Game at some point in the future. I am doing a lot of re-coding with content as well as film cuts for our site and our Youtube channel.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Atlanta is 0-2 versus AFC South Teams in 2019. Now they get a Houston Texans team on the road that is tougher than Indianapolis in Lucas Oil Stadium or a home contest with the Tennessee Titans. Outside of Keanu Neal being injured along with Chris Lindstrom out at right guard, Atlanta is fully healthy yet this team isn't executing and winning like they need to.


Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Deshaun Watson hosts the Atlanta Falcons. There is no way Watson is losing back-to-back home games to NFC South opponents after losing to Kyle Allen at home. I am expecting a statement game by Houston. I feel like they are deeper at wide receiver with DeAndre Hopkins, Kenny Stills, and Will Fuller than Atlanta is at cornerback with Desmond Trufant and Isaiah Oliver.


Prediction: Houston enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $200 dollars, the maximum bet is $240 dollars with the average gambler betting around $220 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49 points. I am going with Houston to win and to cover with the under.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2-2-0

Chris Ransom's Pick


You can go to Fanpicks and enter the Promo Code draftutopia to win $20 dollars. We also have a Draft Kings advertisement on our home page so you can go there to sign up for Fantasy Football as well.


Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Jameis Winston will face the New Orleans Saints. Tampa Bay also has the leagues best run defense in the NFL at the moment. Tampa Bay can limit what Alvin Kamara does on the ground. With Teddy Bridgewater filling in at quarterback for Drew Brees, I love the Buccaneers to go into New Orleans for the second year in a row and defeat New Orleans.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: New Orleans lost their 2018 home opener to Tampa Bay when Ryan Fitzpatrick defeated Drew Brees. I think Jameis Winston will defeat Teddy Bridgewater in an upset. Tampa Bay is one of the leagues best road teams in 2019. This will be Bridgewater's best game statistically though.


Prediction: New Orleans enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $165 dollars, the maximum bet is $185 dollars with the average gambler betting around $175 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49 points. I am going with Tampa Bay to win and to cover with the under.

Minnesota Vikings 2-2-0
Versus
New York Giants 2-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Kirk Cousins has struggled with Minnesota in 2019. Stefon Diggs and Adam Theilen do not trust him. Kyle Rudolph has had a down year.


Mike Zimmer is one of the leagues best head coaches. He has a great defense and will certainly prepare this defense to game plan around New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. Everson Griffen is Minnesota's 4-3 right end with Danielle Hunter at 4-3 left end. Minnesota also has Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: Daniel Jones has former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur as his head coach. Golden Tate is also returning from his suspension. Minnesota has really good cornerbacks like Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and Mike Hughes. Anthony Harris is effective, but inconsistent while Harrison Smith may be able to limit how effective Evan Engram is. Wayne Gallman Jr. will need another big game because Minnesota can focus on the passing game without Saquon Barkley.


Prediction: Minnesota enters as a 5.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $210 dollars, the maximum bet is $250 dollars with the average gambler betting around $230 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45 points. I am going with New York to win and to cover with the over.

Chicago Bears 3-1-0
Versus
Oakland Raiders 2-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


We'll have 2020 draft games for the NHL, NBA, MLB, and MLS as well as the NFl. I'll post links to those when they are up.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago will most likely start Chase Daniel when the Chicago Bears head to London to face the Oakland Raiders. Khalil Mack will get a chance to sack his former teammates.


Why the Oakland Raiders Will Win: Derek Carr faces the Chicago Bears in London. I feel like Carr will do enough to rise to the occassion. Oakland can win this game if Clellin Ferrell and Arden Key expose Chicago's offensive tackles Charles Leno Jr. at left tackle and Bobbie Massie at right tackle.


Prediction: Chicago enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $195 dollars, the maximum bet is $235 dollars with the average gambler betting around $215 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 41 points. I am going with Oakland to win and to cover with the over.

New York Jets 0-3-0
Versus
Philadelphia Eagles 2-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


We just updated our board on Fanspeak. Check out our monthly updates on Fanspeak for more awesome content.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: Sam Darnold may not play again despite beginning to throw again. New York is probably done anyways. Sam Darnold still has a chance to make this team a winner, but New York needs weapons for Darnold as well as pass rushers off the edge. Safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye can limit what tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert can do. C.J. Mosley will limit what Jordan Howard does on the ground.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Carson Wentz faces the New York Jets at home with additional rest after a road win in Green Bay. Left tackle Jason Peters and right tackle Lane Johnson will give Wentz time to pick apart this defense at will.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 13.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $600 dollars, the maximum bet is $900 dollars with the average gambler betting around $750 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5 points. I am going with Philadelphia to win and to cover with the over.

Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football. This is the fourth year Bill Clinton has posted his College Football Playoff.



Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Clemson Tigers

    Clemson defeated Alabama once again in the Championship game thanks to the man with a mullet Trevor Lawrence. Hillary is crazy about is hair Yahoo man. Dabo Sweeney has surpassed Nick Saban as the biggest pimp in College Football





  2. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama wants revenge on Clemson. Nick Saban is the second biggest pimp in College Football.





  3. Georgia

    Georgia has Jake Fromm and DeAndre Swift. This team will have one of the best offenses in the FBS. WOOF WOOF!





  4. Oklahoma

    Lincoln Riley has coached two Heisman winning quarterbacks. He may have a third consecutive quarterback in Jalen Hurts a former prostitute of Nick Saban. Coach Riley is keeping his pimp hand strong at the quarterback position.






Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Denver is going to have their hands full. Luckily Von Miller will be able to get pressure on Philip Rivers without Russell Okung at left tackle.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: Melvin Gordon is back at running back. Without Bradley Chubb off the edge next to Von Miller, Von will be even less productive. The Chargers will be motivated to win big with Melvin Gordon making his long-awaited return this weekend.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $250 dollars, the maximum bet is $300 dollars with the average gambler betting around $275 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43.5 points. I am going with Los Angeles to win and cover with the under.

Green Bay Packers 3-1-0
Versus
Dallas Cowboys 3-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys are now 42-29 under Bill Lumbergh. Lumbergh enters year six as the Dallas Cowboys GM with a 1-2 record in the Playoffs after winning a playoff game in his first year as a GM. If Lumbergh can't right the ship, I'm open to making a new ficitional character the Cowboys GM.




Here is this weeks advice from Bill Lumbergh.

Hey Dak Prescott. What's happening? If you can avoid losing two in a row that would be great.


Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Green Bay faced a tough offensive line against Philadelphia. Now they get another tough offensive line, but without left tackle Tyron Smith. Without Tyron Smith, Green Bay has a chance to steal this game if Z'Darius Smith shows up.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Randall Cobb gets to stick it to Green Bay. DaVante Adams is also expected to be out of this game. Dallas has the defense to limit what Aaron Rodgers does.


Robert Quinn at 4-3 right end an Demarcus Lawrence at 4-3 left end can make things challenging for left tackle David Bahktiari and right tackle Bryan Bulaga.


Prediction: Dallas enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $165 dollars, the maximum bet is $185 dollars with the average gambler betting around $175 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47 points. I am going with Dallas to win and Green Bay to cover with the under.

Indianapolis Colts 2-2-0
Versus
Kansas City Chiefs 4-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



  1. Gangster Squad 4-0

    I ended up exceeding expectations in week 1 with a 207.74-148.06 win. Evan Engram was tight end one in Fantasy this week and I drafted him. I love this roster because I used keepers on Drew Brees and Matt Ryan in a two QB League. Also I got Tom Brady in the ninth round. I spent my first two draft picks on running backs with David Johnson and Dalvin Cook anchoring my backfield. My wide receivers consisted of Kenny Golladay, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jarvis Landry. I still put together a huge day in Fantasy even without A.J. Green or N'Keal Harry who are both on my bench at the moment due to injuries. I'm now the only 4-0 team in the league. Even though Kenny Golladay is on his bye week in week 5, I added Phillip Dorsett off the waiver wire to fill in for Golladay this week.



  2. Previous Rank 2nd




  3. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 3-1

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes began the year with 183.20 points on Taco Corp. Heath has had strong starts in the past, but after looking over his roster he drafted Alvin Kamara, Carson Wentz, Keenan Allen, Julian Edelman, Dede westbrook, Aaron Jones who Heath used a keeper on, Zach Ertz, Dak Prescott as a second quarterback, and the Chargers defense. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes finally suffered their first loss in week 4. This team looks like a contender based on how they've performed so far. They face Brees Nutz the third best team in the league this week in a huge game that will determine who improves to 4-1 and who drops to 3-2.



  4. Previous Rank 1st




  5. Brees Nutz 3-1

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz became the first owner to repeat as Bantle Bowl Champion. Despite losing Alvin Kamara and Todd Gurley, this team still has a lot of talent. This team improved to 3-1 and is most certainly a contender to three peat.



  6. Previous Rank 4th




  7. The Chosen Ones 2-2

    Our league commissioner lost Bantle Bowl I to Jimmy before winning Bantle Bowl II against Jimmy. He made it to Bantle Bowl IV last year. This team is strong at quarterback, running back, and tight end. Jason has won two in a row since starting 0-2. I'm actually kind of scared that Bantle will exact his revenge on me in the playoffs again.



  8. Previous Rank 7th




  9. Kerryon My Wayward Son 2-2

    Riley, the owner of RES Express rebranded his team as Kerryon My Wayward Son after replacing Anti-Bantle a year ago. This team also drafted strong for the most part. Kerryon My Wayward Son lost to Car RamRod. That's why this team is not a contender. You have to admire their 2-2 start though.



  10. Previous Rank 3rd




  11. Car RamRod 2-2

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is w-2. Kerm is just happy that the Alabama Crimson Tide are undefeated at the moment.



  12. Previous Rank 8th




  13. Avengers 2-2

    Avengers has a talented team. Avengers is now 2-2 though and Melvin Gordon's holdout is expected to end. All of the sudden, Avengers is now a potential dark horse.



  14. Previous Rank 5th




  15. Team Mouserat 1-3

    Mark got the 4 seed last year. He is actually favored to win over H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes despite the fact that H.B's Vinegar Strokes is 2-0. Mark no longer has Saquon Barkley so that tells me his team is done for this season. He also drafted Ben Roethlisberger so while he got his first win and is favored this week, I feel like he's too far behind in the standings to catch up. We'll see though, Mark is the only 1-3 owner I trust to come back from this pickle he got himself in.



  16. Previous Rank 9th




  17. Florida Disco Yetis 1-3

    Florida Disco Yeti's is the new team in the league and they are replacing Jimmy Dicken's Team which won Bantle Bowl 1. This team got off to a 1-0 start and deserves credit for that. This team is now 1-3, but is favored to defeat Brees Nutz this week.



  18. Previous Rank 6th




  19. Taco Corp 0-4

    Taco Corp does not look like a playoff team on paper. Taco Corp is the only winless team in the BFFL as I add this data to Taco Corp's Eskimo Brothers Database.







Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Jacoby Brissett is facing a weaker defense in Kansas City compared to Atlanta. Brissett may do well enough in this game to keep it close. At the same time, I cannot sit here and say the Colts will win. Without Malik Hooker, Patrick Mahomes will have a field day with this defense.


Former Kansas City Chiefs pass rusher Justin Houston and 4-3 left end Jabaal Sheard can get pressure on Patrick Mahomes. With Eric Fisher out at left tackle this is the only way Indianapolis can limit the bleeding that Kansas City inflicts on the Colts.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Patrick Mahomes has Sammy Watkins and Travis Kelce to throw to. Kelce got 85 receiving yards against Detroit last week. If Malik Hooker is out again, I won't be surprised if he gets 100 receiving yards against the Indianapolis Colts.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 11 point favorite. The minimum bet is $700 dollars, the maximum bet is $900 dollars with the average gambler betting around $800 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 55 points. I am going with Kansas City to win and to cover with the over.


Final Score Chiefs 41 Colts 17

Cleveland Browns 2-2-0
Versus
San Francisco 49ers 3-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, and Andrew Filiponi. Tonight the gang is in San Francisco.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from San Francisco. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: I found gold coins. Just like Super Mario.

Filiponi: A few years ago these teams had the top 2 picks in the 2017 NFL Draft. Now both teams have finally turned their franchises around.

Pompieni: It certainly appears that way Poni. Who do you like tonight Madden?

Madden: I'll take the 49ers and their gold coins. Cleveland got lucky last week.

Filiponi: I will take Baker Mayfield and the Browns. To lose. I am also picking the 49ers.

Pompieni: Tonights game is brought to you by the Levi's. You buy these pants with dollars. Not gold coins.

Madden: No tonights game is brought to you by the University of Michigan. The former 49ers head coach who got them to their last Super Bowl now coaches there.

Filiponi: Oh god yes.

Pompieni: Alright let's get set for kickoff. We'll be back with kickoff after we torture our audience with Levi's ads and irrelevant enrollment ads promoting the University of Michigan.



Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Baker Mayfield is going to have to win the turnover battle against San Francisco. Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry have to step up like they did in week 4. San Francisco's weakness is at linebacker. Even if Richard Sherman blankets Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry should do well against Ahkello Whitherspoon.


Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: Jimmy Garoppolo can pick apart this secondary pretty effortlessly if Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are both out at cornerback. The pass rushing tandem of Dee Ford and Nick Bosa will limit how effective Baker Mayfield can be considering that Cleveland is pretty dire on the offensive line at the moment.


Prediction: San Francisco enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $160 dollars, the maximum bet is $190 dollars with the average gambler betting around $175 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 46.5 points. I am going with San Francisco to win and to cover with the over.
